If there isn’t another better IPA on tap where you are you might go with this beer. But then there are a whole lot better beers out there. I’d never pay money for this unless macro was the only other choice.
Bottle from GBBF 2017 and drunk at home. Hazy russet colour lasting beige head. Toffee aroma and resin pine. Easy drinking mouthfeel. Toffee. Then piney resin hop on the finish light bitterness. Ok. Soupordean (52) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2017
Strong hazy ocher yellow, good in a piney, spicy, citrusy, floral hops. Refreshing malt undercurrent also some tiny roasty aroma. In mouth unfortunately is not so fresh, but seems not because for the beer itself, but for the date when I drunk it. Or maybe for the way that is been stocked. I would like to try it again much younger

Copper light body, baije head.
Floral and honey Aroma.
Sweet evolve to light bitterness on mouth.
Nice carbonation. bassbug66 (6) - - JUN 16, 2017 does not count
We dry-hop this American Style India Pale Ale with seven grains and four domestic hop varieties by adding dry whole hops to the finishing tank so the beer rests "on top" of the hops for five extra days! Malty sweetness up front with big cascade and glacier hops in the finish -- a wonderfully drinkable IPA!

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-transparent amber color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a moderate pace. Sly stringy lace.
The aroma had some semi-sweet citrusy to grapefruit bitter and sweet hoppiness over top of a light caramel malt base.
The flavor was balanced fairly nice between the malts and the hops, sweetly with an underlying touch of bitterness flowing into the aftertaste and finish.
The palate was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, pretty good what it was, a bit of an old school IPA but I would have again.

Several times on tap. Amber pour with sticky light yellow head. Aroma is piney, citrusy, mandarin, resin. Taste is not overly bitter, malty, hints of caramel, fruity hoppiness. Palate is med bodied, light-med carbonation, med sweet. Old school style, but not bad. Nsanders (1149) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Tap at St Louis Brewmasters. Amber color with moderate lacing. Tangerine, resiny, caramel and bread aromas. Medium sweetness with a light citrus bitterness. Lighter body with a fizzy feel. ciocanelu (2597) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 15, 2016
Clear amber color with a bit of off-white foam. Aroma has earthy malt and a hint of alcohol. Taste starts with some caramel malt, earthy/resiny hops but there is also a stale/cardboard note. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Overall it’s not really bad. Maybe I got an old bottle but the beer was definitely flawed. marcotetta (106) - - AUG 3, 2016

Rated on 5-17-2016. (Bottle) The appearance is a medium sized semi-fizzy ivory head that is mostly lasting, hazy amber body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty lacing. The aroma presents citrus, pine hops, grassy, toasty, and caramel malt. The flavor is lightly bitter, sweet, citrus, pine hops, grainy, and caramel malt. This beer’s mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable easy drinking IPA.
